The 2016 Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon is now in the books, and what a great race it was! It marked my 13th 13.1-mile race and was also my debut as a pacer. As I shared before, I was very nervous but at the same time really excited to be the 2:30 pacer. It was my first time having this responsibility and I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Update on my training: Publix Savannah Women’s Half!

The 2nd Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5k is in less than a week, which means that most runners should’ve been training for a while now.

When I’m training for a half or full marathon I usually run 4 times a week: a couple of easy/recovery runs, a speed/tempo run and a long run. I also like adding some yoga and cross-training in the mix to avoid injuries and strengthen different muscles.

I’m so excited that Spring is almost here, and that means that race season is about to start! After running 2 marathons in less than 3 weeks last Fall I’ve taken a break from running but now I’m ready to get back into it and it feels GOOD.

Honestly I haven’t planned my racing schedule for the year yet but the only certain thing in my future is that I’m participating in the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K. Last year I set my half marathon PR on this beautiful race with a time of 1:40:29, which I know it’ll be really hard to beat, especially after taking off over 2 months from running.


Publix Savannah Women’s Half 2015

The inaugural Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K weekend quickly arrived and what a blast we had!

I’ve enjoyed every single part of the event from the moment I got involved with it. New Balance, one of the main sponsors, had an awesome presence throughout the whole process and treated us, ambassadors, like queens (yes, this means we got all sort of awesome gear!)

Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K

For 2015 I have many fitness goals: I want to complete my second Ironman 70.3, I want to run my 6th marathon and I want to race in a few half marathons, among them the inaugural Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K, which I’m extremely excited about.

When I first heard about this race I knew I was going to sign up right away. Why? Here’re some of the reasons:

Another recovery week is behind me… But now it seems that I’ll have a full month of recovery instead of just a couple of weeks.

On Monday I went for an easy 7 mile run and I felt fine but when I tried to do the same on Tuesday I ended up walking back home. The pain on the outside of my right knee was so intense that I couldn’t even jog. I iced it, used the foam roller and three days later, when the pain was gone, I tried to go again but the same thing happened.
